Rent-A-Center believes investing in our coworkers allows you to achieve greater professional goals. In August, our DM Academy provided District Managers the tools to ENGAGE, EQUIP and EMPOWER them for success. The three-day conference brought together District Managers from all lines of business, where they networked, heard from FSC Senior Leadership, and learned together in breakout sessions and workshops.
APRO has welcomed Rent-A-Center’s own Cathy Skula to their Board of Directors! Cathy is our SVP of Franchising and has been with Rent-A-Center for over 20 years. Congrats Cathy!
We are #TexasStrong! With the Rent-A-Center corporate office located in Plano, TX, our coworkers are eager to help those who have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey. We have started a clothing and food drive to support evacuees in Dallas and Houston-area shelters.
In just 1 week our RAC family has raised $22,720 for our coworkers that have been affected this hurricane season! We greatly appreciate all the generous donations as we continue to work towards our $50,000 goal!
For part of Rent-A-Center's Hurricane Harvey Relief Project, we are raising money to help our impacted Rent-A-Center coworkers. We have established a GoFundMe Account, which we will distribute to our impacted coworkers.

The Frisco Family Services Food Pantry is the most utilized service of the agency distributing over 47,000 pounds a month, serving more than 3,700 individuals. This vital resource allows Frisco and Frisco ISD neighbors and friends to use their financial resources on other expenses during their time of crisis.
There was a total of 40 RAC Volunteers. HR recently created a volunteer initiative in their department, pledging to volunteer their team to a worthy cause each quarter. Each coworker volunteered approximately 6 hours. They divided into teams of 3 and took inventory of the entire Food Pantry.
